Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-USB2 MCE Remote

MythDora supports it!

Newest Hauppauge v1069 remote and USB IR receiver

I have the latest remote ordered from the Hauppauge website just 3 weeks ago. It doesn't work with the lirc_mceusb2 module... it requires the lirc_mceusb module.

Everything I'd read pointed me to the mceusb2 module to get the thing working... after two weeks of ripping my hair out -- I finally compiled the mceusb module and the remote works...

Any suggestions on how I should update the page to indicate that the latest (black colored) Hauppauge remotes require the old mceusb driver, not the new one?

UPDATE: I think my above assumptions may be wrong -- but I haven't been able to communicate with any other actual person regarding their success in getting the new black remote working.

I have it working now -- but whether that was due to adding lirc_mceusb support or rather just recompiling and reinstalling the mceusb2 module has yet to be tested.


Microsoft MCEusb ver 2

I have the 1039 remote with the 1040 receiver. Every line on this article is confirmed. Saved me hours of wondering why could change a channel on my TV set.

Thanks for the information.

Need troubleshooting section for transmitter

It seems to be a common problem that the receiver for this remote works fine (out of the box on Mythbuntu) but the transmitter just does not send anything. No error codes are seen; irsend LIST "" "" looks like everything is set up right for the transmitter, and there is no visible blinking on the USB box. I have this problem and have come across several similar reports, with no follow-up. If anybody has any idea please add a troubleshooting section for it.
